    Uptime monitoring?

    Hi there,

    I'm looking for recommendations for a service that monitors the uptime of your website, preferably one that has an option for a public link displaying your uptime history. I'm not opposed to paying for it, but we're looking for something that's no more than $15/month, for HTTP monitoring of a single website.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    We've been using Panopta recently and it's great. In the past, we've also used Pingdom which works as well.

    Yeah but it's useless to use until you have a spare box somewhere offsite that will monitor for you.

    I always thought SiteUptime or HyperSpin were good.

    We use Nagios ourselves, but Pingdom looks great and worked well during the trial. I believe they have a 100% free plan now too.

    The Monitis, though I didn't use their service, but their free monitor service mon.itor.us is really cool

    You might also want to look at Hyperspin, though they don't give you pretty graphs to look at :O

    A little correction/update. We have just launched performance monitoring. Our uptime report, outage history and performance report are now with graphs. To see how they look like, use the demo link on our website and go to the "Report" tab.

    Many people do not know about this because we have yet to announce, but we will announce real soon.

    Thank you.

    Hyperspin has always worked for me, simple and effective.

    We also use Pingdom, and I haven't had a problem with them. We also used HyperSpin, and they weren't bad either. The only reason we switched, is Pingdom was a little cheaper, and their interface is a little clearer.

    For verification if anyone needs it, simply go to my website, and click on Status. You'll see the pingdom page load.
